PowerPaint is a paint program a little bit similar to Microsoft Paint, but not. It allows you to modify existing photos or to create new drawings and then save them as either JPG, BMP, TIF, GIF or PNG.
The program itself actually advertises itself as a suitable replacement for Windows Paint and it certainly does include a nicer layout and many more features than the standard program which comes for free with Windows.
Unlike Windows Paint, though, you're able to apply some image toning and color effects such as gray, black and white, hue shift, gamma, brightness/contract and saturation.
PowerPaint also offers several brushes and special effects making it a bit more advanced than free Paint but certainly nowhere near Adobe Photoshop or anything like that. If you look around though, you will find many free paint applications which blow PowerPaint out of the water in terms of features and functionality.Compability and license
